I grew up on these cookies...my mother made them all the time and when I started having children of my own, she passed the recipe down to me. I wanted to make some the other day and was heartbroken when I couldn't find my recipe! Thank goodness I found it here. There are, without a doubt, the best cookies! If you like chewy cookies, you will love these!
